  • 1/2 medium onion, quartered
  • 3 large sweet gherkins
  • 1/2 cup pecans, toasted (see Tips) and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 16 slices firm white sandwich bread
  • Garnish:

    chopped parsley and pecans
  • Pulse all ingredients except bread in a food processor until finely chopped and combined well.
